The John Jay Center on Terrorism will host a seminar on Friday, March 22, from 3:00pm to 5:00pm in Room 964 of the new building of John Jay College. Carlo Strenger will speak on the topic The Politics of Israel, Terrorism, and Pathways to Peace. Strenger is a well-known psychologist, and psychoanalyst who has been publicly involved in Israeli politics and culture since the late 1990s. For years he had a weekly radio talk show, and in the 2003 elections he was on the strategy team of the Labor party.
Strenger’s central claim is that Israel must be understood as a belated country that is currently in a culture war about its identity, with central issues like the relation of religion and state as yet unsolved. He also analyzes the complex, guilt-ridden relation between Europe and Israel, and claims that the Middle Eastern conflict is, among others, intractable because of the exclusive claim of monotheistic religions to absolute truth.

The conference will explore the legal authorities for war, the expanding definitions of the ‘enemy’, the evolution of the battlefield, including drone killings and cyber warfare, and the implications of these changes going forward. Political and military leaders, national security and cyber experts, leading journalists, and others will provide a platform for understanding the next phase of America’s international ‘war on terror’ and, in a larger sense, the future of warfare.
